lots and lots of sound
insomnij, 18.02.2020
This pedal was purchased for use in the home Studio, as well as performances in cafes(I would like).
The sound is gorgeous, and the tuning range is huge, from Hendrix of the 70s to modern Black Keys and Gary Clark Jr.
Two toggle switches allow you to make the sound unique. Need a classic Fuzz, again same translate tumblers in the lower position position
and the monitors already have the legendary sound dire straits money for nothing
Pros bag this:
1. Relatively low price(for a very high-quality and firm lotion),
2. Aluminum lightweight and durable body(very convenient to take to performances and rehearsals)
3. And a very cool appearance, the adjustment knobs have a nice smooth running, chrome-plated metal toggle switches
4. Made in NYC, USA!!!
5. Sustain - sometimes it seems that it is infinite
Of the minuses, I can only note that if there is no power supply, you will have to pick up a screwdriver and spin the pedal (4 bolts),
to get to the terminal connector. But a screwdriver is not a terrible tool, so with a little skill you can cope
Again, the Pedalboard becomes chic, plus a standard 9V power supply

Conclusion: for a little money, I got the most beautiful lotion that forms an adult and awesome sound.
In my circle of friends, I will certainly recommend this pedal.
If you compare it with the classic version and Tone Wicker, I will definitely choose the second one because of the wider settings.
I can't compare it with other older models, since the choice of sound will be more subjective.

Unmistakable Muff with more flexibility
Nadz, 13.03.2015
I chose this pedal as I love that classic Muff sound, but there are extras on this pedal for those who want a couple of different options in one pedal. Purists might not like the added features, but personally I see nothing wrong with having more options to choose from.

The "extra additions" on this pedal are the two micro-toggles, labelled "Tone" and "Wicker" respectively.

The "Tone" switch allows you to have the full, original Muff tone circuit in the On position, or bypass the tone circuit in the Off position. This switch radically changes the sound of the pedal, and you can use it to really shape the kind of fuzz you can get out of it. In my experience, switching the tone toggle to the Off position gives me a gnarlier, crunchier Fuzz. In the On position, you get that smoother, more original Big Muff sound.
*WARNING* One thing I wasn't completely prepared for when experimenting with the Tone switch the first time I plugged this pedal in, you may want to turn your amp volume down. I had the pedal's volume quite high when playing with the tone switch in the On position, but when I flicked it to the Off position, it seemed as thought I had let the beast off the leash. It absolutely ROARED at me, it was so raucous and untamed that had it been a wild animal, it would have torn my face off. So naturally I loved it! :)

The "Wicker" switch is quite a nice addition, it seems to keep some of the higher frequencies when you turn down the sustain knob, whereas if you turned the Wicker switch off and rolled back the sustain, you would lose some highs and get a muddier sound, as you would with the original Muff. It's a nice little switch that just adds a little more flexibility when shaping your ideal tone.

In conclusion, I would say that even if you were an original Big Muff purist, this pedal is worth looking into, especially if pedal board space is an issue and you do want more tone options in your signal chain. After all, you're pretty much getting the original Muff sound but with a few extras for those times when you just want to experiment... or maybe you will find something in the extra features that you actually prefer over the original. It's worth a go!

Difficult to set up pedal, but with a great sound
TTguitar, 10.03.2020
The big muff is a classic among guitar pedals. It can add a lot of sustain and power to your solos or "dirt" to your rhythm playing. The tone wicker function adds a lot of higher frequencies, so its more versatile than an ordinary big muff. However this pedal does not work well with other pedals on my pedalboard. It does not work good especially with the Ts mini and the blues driver.
Pros:
-classic big muff sound with extra features
-great for solos, especially if you play from the 12th fret or higher
-the tone and sustain potenciometer have a wide range
- it comes with a sticker :)
cons:
-does not work great with other pedals
-the wicker functions sounds good only with humbuckers (at least in my case)
-the tone switch is pretty useless

Absolute beast!
diacope_recs, 27.11.2020
It's a big fuzzy pedal. Not much to say. If you're after a doom/sludge sound, you'll get it really easily.
